FANUC Adds SCARA Robots to the Small Robot Mix

As a robot integrator, one of the main reasons Motion Controls Robotics selected to become certified as a FANUC integrator is because of the company’s focus on customer needs.  FANUC started a model of developing, building and innovating robots based on the automotive industry’s needs. As interest in robotics grew, FANUC continued this close focus on what industries needed to grow and stay profitable.small robot line-up

A few years ago, FANUC introduced a line of collaborative robots for this reason. Now, they are bringing SCARA robots into the mix to add to their large line-up of small, high-speed, lower payload robots.

The New SCARA Options:

The SR-3iA/SR-6iA  SCARA models offer best-in-class performance with high precision (± 0.01mm). Since the robots are designed and built by FANUC, there are many of the same features as the rest of the robot line-up:scara robot

  • Vision guidance
  • Force sensing
  • Line tracking
  • Safety

A SCARA robot is a lightweight and compact robot option with a 360° work envelope. For ease of installation, the robot base offers multiple cable connection options. Even the controller (R-30iB Compact Plus) is compact making sure the total footprint remains small.

FANUC’s new SCARA iRProgrammer software interface means the robots can be purchased without a teach pendant and programmed using an M-tablet or PC. The interface can be accessed using a web browser.
